CHICAGO — Alcon launched the CyPass micro-stent at the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting, according to a company press release.

CyPass, approved in July 2016 for use with cataract surgery to lower IOP in adult patients with mild to moderate primary open-angle glaucoma, is implanted during cataract surgery into the supraciliary space, the release said.

“This new treatment option for cataract patients with mild to moderate primary open angle glaucoma has been demonstrated to have a lasting, significant, IOP-lowering effect,” said Sergio Duplan, Alcon’s North American regional president.
